The Learn to Crochet Project by Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin of The Crochet Project

THE BOOK for beginners!

It’s the book the authors, Kat Goldin and Joanne Scrace wish they would have learned from. Over their years of teaching experience they’ve honed in on the different areas that people struggle with and which simple tips can be shared to overcome them. The spiral binding allows the book to sit flat while you work and makes it easy to flip back and forth between the various bits of information you might need. This book will give you the best possible start and is the next best thing to a workshop or class.

The book contains four projects over 80 pages. It is written as a course, so start at the beginning and work your way through the projects in order.

The projects are:

  • Burwell Cowl: the first project in the book and is designed to help you practice your basic stitches.
  • Wicken Mitts: an introduction to working into row ends, following a pattern and making something to fit.
  • Bottisham Hat: introduces you to working in the round, making a traditional motif, working seamlessly and decreasing.
  • Quy Shawl: introduces you to reading charts, working lace patterns, picots, understanding special stitches, increasing in pattern.

There is something wonderful about being able to wear something you’ve made right from the beginning!

All patterns are written for DK weight yarn, we recommend Kelbourne Woolens Scout.

The book is written in UK standard crochet terminology and has a full discussion of the differences between the UK and US standards and makes references to the US terms throughout.

This print copy of the book comes with a complimentary Ravelry download code.

About The Crochet Project

The Crochet Project is run by Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin, both designers with a passion for beautiful and wearable designs.

Kat is an award winning blogger with a flair for presentation. She is the author of Crochet at Play and Hook Stitch and Give. Her work has been featured in many publications. Kat is behind the gorgeous aesthetic of The Crochet Project , in charge of all the photography, branding and layout. Kat lives passionately by the motto that life is too short to match socks and will often be stepping over piles of laundry or leaning over a tower of dirty dishes to get the perfect shot. Her 3 children don’t recognise her without a Canon in front of her face and balls of yarn in her pockets.

Joanne Scrace (aka Not So Granny) specialises in seamless knitting and crochet, often vintage inspired but always with a fresh modern feel. Her work has been featured in many magazines. Joanne keeps an eye on the technical aspects of The Crochet Project, ensuring quality and consistency in the patterns.
